A bunch more Higghlanders to share, 5 different manufacturers I think, full write up and lots of images on the blog, I cant help thinking the officer from Bicorne looks a bit like Billy Connelly:

Cheers, I always fancied a film about Montrose in the style of the old  musketeer films, Big Yin in a Roy Kinear  type riole.

So far so good.  Lovely paint jobs!

I have been looking at doing something from the Jacobite uprisings, as I've been to both Culloden and Killikrankie.  Not sure I want to do all that tartan, though... :o

Cheers Keith, CapnJim I know what you mean about the tartan, I feel like its worth it but I do need to have a rest from the plaid before my eyes go funny so do a few then paint somethign else.
